You’d thinking hacking would be more technical. Write code based on specific hardware configurations, phish paswords from unwary office drones, etc. Turns out all you need to do is drop into the glowing neon cyberworld and click on a building to start the hack, then fight off swarms of defensive programs while the program does its job. Survive the experience and you can loot the building’s empty shell for the shiny loot inside, then either use or sell it to buy better defensive and offensive programs. Couldn’t be easier, if you can survive the experience.
